Robotic Farming & BASIS

LinkedIn +

As Christmas comes closer, Agronomist & Arable Farmer brings you the gift of a brand-new episode of our monthly podcast, Arable Chat.

In this month’s episode, John Swire, Agronomist & Arable Farmer editor, is joined by guests Jonathan Gill, Mechatronics & UAS Researcher at Hands Free Farm at Harper Adams to talk about the Hands-Free Tractor, Hands Free Farm and robotic farming as a whole.

Hands Free Farm (HFF) features automated machines growing crops autonomously, without operators in the driving seats or agronomists on the ground.

Jonathan delves into the challenges HFF have faced, the future of the company and humorous anecdotes.

BASIS

John is later joined by Teresa Meadows head of Environment, Audit and Public Affairs at BASIS, talking about the work she does on the Basis team since joining earlier this year.

BASIS is an independent organisation committed to raising professional standards across land management and food production by supporting people and businesses with our industry leading qualifications, professional registers and auditing schemes.

Teresa takes you on a walk through her experience so far, the organisations new courses and gaining CPD points.

You can also hear stories on the latest news affecting the industry.
